HC refuses to stay release of 'Umrao Jaan' for recovery of dues
02nd Nov 2006 09.50 IST
The Bombay High Court on Wednesday refused to stay the release of Aishwarya Rai - Abhishek Bachchan - starrer film Umrao Jaan on a petition seeking dues of Rs 7.5 lakh for post-production work.
Vacation Judge V M Kanade said he was deferring the hearing to November 8 before a regular bench as the court felt that there was no urgency in the matter.
The movie is slated for an all India release on November 3.
RajTaru studios had filed a petition seeking recovery of Rs 7.5 lakh due for postproduction work of Umrao Jaan and also asked for a stay on the film's release.
The petitioner contended that on earlier occasions also the producer of the film, J.P. Dutta , had not settled post production dues for his films Refugee and LoC Kargil and paid only Rs 10 lakh as part payment towards the same.
The petitioner further said it had approached the Association of Motion Pictures Studios, which appointed a Dispute Settlement Committee to look into the issue.
The Committee had directed Dutta to pay the dues but the payment had not been received so far, he said.
Seeking a stay on Umrao Jaan, the petitioner raised an apprehension that if the film failed at the box office and in case the producer suffered losses, then they would not get their dues and hence insisted on payment of dues before the release of the film.
